Dixie Chicks On Being The First Targets Of 'Cancel Culture': 'It Can Ruin People’s Lives'

Dixie Chicks make a special appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing Monday (March 16), and open up about their comeback.

The ladies – Martie Maguire, Emily Robison and Natalie Maines – chat about their hiatus from music and what it was like to be among the first celebrities to feel the impact of “cancel culture.”

“I think we were one of the first people to feel that cancel culture,” Natalie tells Ellen. “What we said back then, or what I said back then, would not even be a thing today because it was really mild compared to what people say today.”

“But you know, on one hand everyone’s got this platform where they can say whatever they want to say,” Natalie continues. “But on the other hand this platform can move really quickly and ruin people’s lives.”

Later, the Dixie Chicks play “Who Would Natalie Rather?” to help their bandmate find a potential suitor, and hit the stage for a special performance of the title track off their first studio album in 14 years, “Gaslighter.”
